MARC JACOBS BEAUTY - REVIEW - AVAILABLE AT SEPHORA

Well ladies, if you don't own anything from Marc Jacob's due to the price point, you may be able to treat yourself to a little something from his cosmetic line as it's not going to put a huge dent in your wallets like his shoes, handbags and clothing line would!

Marc Jacob's recently partnered with Sephora and now has an assortment of cosmetics available to us.  I jumped on this band wagon and picked up a few from his line.

His line carries products such as eyeshadows, mascara, brow gel, foundation, lipstick, lipglosses, blush, eyeliner and so much more.

What I love about his line is the packaging. He is BANG ON when it comes to the packaging of his beauty line. His attention to detail is incredible.

The following was what I purchased:
SHAMELESS BOLD BLUSH:

Available in 8 shades. Cost: $30.00 USA / $36 Canadian
MY REVIEW:
Packaging is superb. I wish the product would follow suit! I purchased Outspoken which is a beautiful pink / liliac colour. I was disappointed as I thought it would be darker and more pigmented. It is a buildable colour, however, it is best suited for very light to light skin tones. I have medium olive skin and I am paler in the winter months, and the pigmentation payoff was minimal A darker colour may be better. I ordered online without swatching...I feel you better swatch them prior to purchase. Expensive for what you recieve. Tarte and Illimasqua are better! The colour is pretty though...just wish it would be more pigmented. Average at best!








MARC JACOBS BEAUTY - HIGHLINER - GEL CRAYON

Available in 6 shades. Cost: $25 USA / $30 Canadian
MY REVIEW:
Great packaging. This eyeliner has a beautiful application. It's creamy, glides on smoothly. The blacquer that I purchased which is pure black is a very deep rich black colour. It stays on the eyes all day long. If you are using this for your waterline, it will rub onto your lower eye. I found that the product will goop into my tear duct. I feel this product is average. It is comparable to UD 24/7 liner. I am not a fan of the non-sharpening feature. I like to have a precise tip on my liner. Worth a try, but I found it to be "average" and comparable to other liners on the market...not unique in any way, aside from the stellar packaging!



MARC JACOBS BEAUTY - LUST FOR LACQUER LIP VINYL - FULL
http://www.sephora.com/lust-for-lacquer-lip-vinyl-full-P381910?skuId=1510890

Available in 6 shades. Cost: $28 USA / $34 Canadian
MY REVIEW:
Package is fabulous! I give Marc Jacobs a 10 on his packaging of his cosmetic line. The lipgloss is pretty. I enjoy how opaque the colour is. There is a slight menthol taste to the product and a very faint plumping feeling, not as strong as the Buxom line. I purchased Boom Boom, which is a pretty raspberry/fushia colour. Smooth application, glides on the lips beautifully and has no sticky feeling what so ever. The wear time is about 1 to 1.5 hours maximum. For the price and hype in the beauty community, I feel that there are a lot of other products that compare. It's average, not superb. If you are wanting to try it out, I say go for it, but don't expect to be wow'd...at least I was not!
